U-434 served in the Russian Navy from 1974 until 2002 when it was decommissioned. The tragedy of the Russian nuclear submarine Kursk on 12 August 2000 led to the idea of a submarine as testimony to the Cold War. U-434 is now an evocative visit, cramped and packed with equipment on all surfaces. Guided tours are in German, and so you will probably explore the sub on your own, a visit that takes about half an hour. To see the conning tower, you have to take the tour (extra €4). Well worth it if you like the film Das Boot. Admission €9. Open Mon-Sat 9am-8pm, Sun 11am-8pm.
